Saas Fee is a winter wonderland in swiss Alps. Beautful white mountains surrounding this charmy little village. The best thing is to go there with some good friends and have some fun together. I love cross country skiing and took some girls with me to try some white slopes in the nature. It was great fun. I am proud of a good friend at who did cross country first time in her life and really liked it.

Passionate food lover as we are there were many evenings of cooking together and trying some swiss culinary winter highligts in nearby restaurants. It is not possible to have skiing holiday in Alps without trying swiss Fondue. Every village in Alps making their on one with local cheese. Yummy.

The other local speciality is the Apfelstrudel. I thought it was an austrian speciality but in Saas Fee I had the best Appelstrudel ever. I had to go back to this little apfelstrudel cafe every evening after cross country skiing and enjoy this piece of heaven mmmmmmm.

One evening we had a pancake evening.  The best thing with pancakes is that you can eat it them with almost everything: jam, cheese, salmon, cottage cheese, fruits, ice cream.

I grow up with pancakes. We had them almost every weekend. My dad made always big thin ones and my mum little fat ones with buttermilk. In Saas Fee I made the big  thin pancakes with salmon and cottage cheese.

Last christmas



Basic pancakes:

3dl milk
2 eggs
2 dl plain flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon sugar  

To add:

Smoked salmon
cottage cheese
ice cream and fruits

Beat eggs with sugar. Add milk and salt. Add flour to milk mixture. Whisk everything together and (if you can wait ;)) let the batter rest for 20 minutes.
Heat a frying pan on medium heat and add some oil or butter. Pour some mixture into the pan and swirl gently. Cook until golden from both sides. Set the pancakes aside.

To serve add some smoked salmon, cottage cheese, dill and fold the pancakes together.
Ice cream and fruits are a good sweet alternative.
